In China, it is planned to create an encyclopedia, which will become an analogue of Wikipedia. More than 20 thousand scientists and experts from different fields will be involved in this work. The Chinese government wants to create a product that is ideal for the inhabitants of the Middle Kingdom. All information that will contain the Chinese Wikipedia, will pass through censorship.

The specialists will take up writing more than 300 thousand articles of 1000 words each for a new encyclopedia. It is expected that the project will be launched next year.

The editor of the project calls his offspring not an encyclopedia, but a Great Chinese wall of culture.

Opinion of foreign experts

The experts from other countries believe that the new Chinese Wikipedia will distort data, adjust information for the ideological reasons of the country’s leaders.
